What is Upcycling?
Upcycling is the process of taking something old and turning it into something new. An environmentally friendly solution to reducing waste products. This can be with clothes, furniture, pallets or general household materials.
What can it be used for?
Learning skills in how to take something old and turn it into something new with a new function can be great for making those bespoke items to gift to friends and family, or bringing a new lease of life for that old piece of furniture that’s seen better days. Not only is upcycling great for reducing waste, the possibilities are endless!
How long are the sessions?
Sessions are either 1 hour long, or a 4 hour supported session.
In the 4 hour supported sessions, you will be guided through our specific upcycling tutorials, working through each step one at a time allowing you to ask any questions as you go along.
For any of our sessions you can request a 1-2-1 with one of our team afterwards in case you have any more questions or want some more specific information.
What different sessions are available?
We have a series of different sessions. You can choose to book a place on all sessions or just 1 or 2 that are most useful to you.
- Furniture Renovation (1 hour)
- Textiles (1 hour)
- Sustainable face mas (4 hours)
- Pallet garden planter (4 hours)
How do the sessions run?
For the one hour sessions, there are made up of a mixture of demonstrations, general information, example products, finishing with a question and answer session, answering your questions directly. The longer interactive sessions you are guided through our online tutorials step-by-step to provide you with any extra help and support you need to create your final product.
